Aftermath Mondays: Kobe Drops 52, LeBron 37, Rockets Win 15th Straight, Should Suns Hit Panic Button?
The NBA is alive and well!
Anyone doing the lazy Sunday thing must have caught the Cavs-Bulls, Lakers-Mavs double-header with LeBron and Kobe doing the damn thing!
First, King James goes off for 37 points at home against the Bulls in a Cavs' win. LeBron is absolutely ridiculous. A dude 6-8, 250 lbs. shouldn't be able to do half the sh*t he does. I mean those passes ... come.on. And every dunk he had on Sunday, he was getting SOHH high over the rim that he was banging those jams on the way down. UGGH! This dude already became the youngest to 10,000 points and he's only going to get better. Semi automatic, no hyphen ... it's frightenin'.
I think your man Kobe was sitting and watching LeBron, before his game tipped off. We all know Kobe's gotta healthy ego and had to one up King James. That's why K-B-24 WENT OFF for 52 points in the Lakers' OT win over the Mavs in L.A.
Now get this - 30 of Kobe's points came in the fourth quarter and overtime. Just.not.right. M-V-P! LeBron and Kobe are SOHH far ahead of the L's time, they're about to start another life, look behind you, they're about to pass y'all twice!
Moving on ... props to the Rockets. They got a 41-year-old (allegedly; maybe older) center in Dikembe Mutombo and T. Mac and company are still blasting off. They beat the Nuggets on Sunday for their 15th straight 'W' and if the playoffs were to start today, they'd be the sixth seed. (The Spurs won their ninth in a row last night ... don't sleep!)
Anyway, without Yao will the Rockets hold on down the stretch and clinch a playoff spot!?
Finally, do y'all realize that since Shaq made his debut with Phoenix on Feb. 20, the Suns have gone 2-4? On Saturday night, Phoenix lost to Philadelphia, son ... and the Diesel was on damn-near empty, getting ran off the court by those young Philly boys. SMH. I know the experiment is still young, but I would be scared if I'm Phoenix. I mean no one in the West is budging and the Suns changed the whole makeup of their squad. SOHH far, NOOO good!
But I'll ask y'all ... my faithful readers: Should the Suns be scared? Will they be knocked out of the playoffs in the first round? Keep it funky!
